Summer Afternoon in Roslyn

I painted this piece en plein aire this summer. Then I edited it in my studio. I mainly worked on the edges of the barns. The edges of the roofs were too sharp before, and I softened them. I also moved the tiny shed in front of the large barn away from the edge of canvas, and painted it with mpre desaturated and dark color. So you can see that it's there, but not too distracting. Now the weathered, yellow face of the building looks more like the center of interest which I intended. I used a palette knife to add texture toward the end.
